Choosing Your Donor

How To Find Your Perfect Sperm Donor

California Cryobank's high standards and extensive screening process means our catalogue has nothing but the highest quality donors for you to choose from. Rest assured that our recruiters, lab technicians, genetic counselors, and medical directors have made sure you can't go wrong when selecting your donor. Simply follow these easy steps and let your ideal donor find you.

1. Run a donor search

Check out our donor search and try not to be too specific with your initial search criteria. Limiting your first search to one or two key characteristics will generally provide you with a good sized list to start. If you search too specifically in the beginning, you risk eliminating donors who may meet most, but not all, of your criteria. You will have plenty of time to narrow the field as you go along.

And if you're interested in greater family exclusivity, be sure to check out our Donor Reserve Program Catalog. These qualified donors have only a limited number of vials available to a limited number of families.

2. Think about important people in your life

Is it their height, hair color, and family medical history the first thing that pops into your head - or is it the less tangible things that define them in your mind? Most likely, it's these little things that your child may find fascinating about your donor one day. This means doing your research which starts by selecting your Donor Information Subscription level. Learn whether your donor choices were artists, athletes, musicians, or scientists by reading their Donor Personal Essays and Profiles as if you were reading them to your future three-year-old. Look at their Childhood Photos knowing how meaningful it may be one day when your son or daughter recognizes that button nose or big brown eyes as their own. Study the Express Yourself(s) knowing that while they may just seem cute or quirky to you now, your little one may carry them close to their heart for a lifetime. Hopefully, learning more and more about each donor will help make your ultimate decision that much easier.

3. When donors are listed with “please call”

You may need to call our Client Services Department if you find a donor who has "Please Call" under his availability. This means he has fewer than 10 vials available and we will need to check our inventory to confirm we have the number of vials you need.

4. Purchase and store your vials

Purchasing additional vials is the only way to guarantee your donor will be available should you require additional treatments or decide to have another child in the future. Our Family Today and Family Tomorrow programs offer free storage options as well as the ability to sell back any unused vials once your family is complete.

5. Place your order for delivery

Ideally, allow an extra day for shipping prior to your insemination as weather and technical difficulties can affect Federal Express Overnight deliveries.

National averages range from 3-4 insemination cycles per successful pregnancy. We recommend purchasing at least 5 vials per child to guarantee your donor remains available until reaching your personal family goals. Additionally, you get 1 Year FREE storage if you purchase 4 or more vials ($475 value).


Our donors sell out and retire quickly! We have thousands of clients forced to choose between a new donor or not having a second child because they chose not to store vials for future use while they were available. To help you plan for your future, we offer 3 Years FREE storage if you purchase 3 Years+ vials ($1,050 value) - as well as the ability to sell back any unused vials that have not left our control.
